Mall Survival

by: Pam Kearns

Paracord Survival bracelets are all very well - but we know there are tougher environs to survive than out in the forest where all you have to worry about are bears and venomous snakes. Anyone whose has ever shopped the mall pre-holiday sale knows that venomous snakes have nothing on the angry store clerk and toddlers make bears look like a picnic.

This a more feminine version of a cobra stitch bracelet and is done using our new Parachute Cord. The sample shown measures about 9.25" in length and fits a 6.5" wrist. You need to allow more length due to the thickness of the cord and beads.

The instructions for the bracelet are in the Parachute Cord Instruction Booklet with the following changes:

Alternately - check out this video or search on youtube for "paracord bracelet tutorial" - there are thousands of them!

For my wrist, the space between the two jump rings was equal to my wrist size. You can try on the bracelet for fit before you cut off and 'melt' the edges. The knots are easily untied if necessary.

FYI, the 'Cobra' stitch is also known as the 'Square' stitch in macrame.
